Get Involved


From its start in 1903, the National Wildlife Refuge System has owed its very existence to concerned citizens eager to protect America's natural resources.


If you have an interest in wildlife conservation, enjoy working outdoors or with people, or simply want to give back, consider joining the refuge's volunteer staff.

Volunteers are an essential part of operations at Bill Williams River National Wildlife Refuge, staffing the Visitor Center, conducting wildlife surveys and assisting with biological studies, presenting interpretive walks and talks, constructing and maintaining refuge facilities and trails, improving habitat, and more!

Bring your skills, talents, and energy; we’ll supply the rest, including training and uniforms.
